JON Gosselin is helping daughter Hannah enjoy a bite of the Hollywood lifestyle – by letting her get a diamond encrusted on her tooth.
The former reality star accompanied his 17-year-old daughter on a trip to Beverly Hills so-called Diamond Dentist, while vacationing together in Los Angeles.
According to the Diamond Dentist website: “Dr. Anjali Rajpal is famed for her artistic creation of the Diamond Smile.
“She aesthetically places tooth gems while incorporating Diamonds and Swarovski crystals to give smiles a sparkling effect by capturing colorful prisms of light.”
The bling is designed to last for years, or can be easily removed, if desired.
Daddy Jon, 44, says he agreed to the mouth makeover in hopes that spoiling Hannah could eventually lead to reunions with his estranged other children.
“Hannah’s a free spirit,” Jon told HollywoodLife. “I hope her opening up will allow the others to open as well, so maybe the others will start speaking their mind more freely, knowing they have a voice. A mentorship almost. Hannah’s doing it, maybe we’ll do it too.”
Only Hannah and brother Colin live with Jon. The rest of the kids live with mom Kate Gosselin.
Earlier this month, the Amazon employee appeared on Dr. Oz, and discussed the rift in the family, which has been ongoing for years.
The father of eight admitted he hasn’t “spoken to my twins in eight years,” adding: ” I text them every single year.”
Similarly, he said Hannah has “been snubbed by her brothers.” She’s been in contact with some of her sisters, however.
Hannah and Kate remain estranged.
Asked if his daughter misses Kate, Jon said: “No, I know that. She feels a little bit slighted from what things have transpired. I know she misses Leah and Alexis. She’s been snubbed by her brothers, so I don’t know what’s going on with that.”
The former TLC star shared that Hannah had recently been in touch with some of her siblings, getting together with them as they passed through Pennsylvania.
“Hannah talked to them and they visited the county near where we live now and Hannah had dinner with them ’cause Maddie goes to school in upstate New York,” he recalled.
Asked why he thought his children don’t speak with him, Jon said: “I don’t know.”
He went on to suggest that they may not want to “upset” Kate by speaking to him, adding: “It’s hard when you don’t know.”
Jon said he has attempted to reach out, and plans to contact his children once they turn 18 to attempt to reconnect.
He has tried to reach two of his daughters, but can’t get through.
Jon revealed that he doesn’t have some of his children’s phone numbers, but could likely get them.
He fears, however, that trying to reach out could impact Hannah’s relationship with her siblings.
